Washington, D.C. — Absent federal legislation to increase investments in the child care system, states have an opportunity and an imperative to take action on behalf of children and families. A Center for American Progress toolkit, in conjunction with the updated state and national data featured in CAP’s new interactive data dashboard, will help educate policymakers and stakeholders about the most pressing needs for young children in their state and help inform actions they may take to support young children, their families, and the child care workforce.
As many states embark on their 2024 legislative sessions, this event will explore both products, showcase how they can be used in conjunction, and provide state policymakers and advocates with the resources to make an effective case for increasing investments in child care and early learning programs in their states.
Join CAP’s Early Childhood Policy team to learn how the recently released data dashboard and state policymaker toolkit can be used to increase investments in child care and early learning programs.
